8+1 rules for the Tokyo safety ride

東京を安全に走るための8+1のルール。 To have all of the tours safe, there is 8+1 rules that we want participants to follow. These are all part of Japanese traffic rules and regulations. ------------------------------ 1. Always Stop on this red upside down triangle "Stop Sign" 2.

Tokyo's now and then, is here

東京の昔と今がここに。 This is the park I like. From here you could see Tokyo's now and then. Imperial Palace, ancient form gates of "Edo Castle", and sky scraper buildings. Tokyo has a lot of different scenics. These scenic change is one of the Tokyo's charm. We suppose Tokyo has more elevation than other cities. That's why we could see most of the city from the top, like a highest place on castle. With normal bicycle, coming here is to climbing up the steep hills with tears. Instead, our E-bike would come here much more easily. And best of all, for that, there is not many people coming here. Real good but unknown spot. How do you like that? It's from our Afternoon PM tour. Join us on your next visit.
